Yes, You Can Adopt! A Comprehensive Guide to Adoption

by Richard Mintzer (New York: Carroll & Graf Publishers, 2003)



Buy this book

Yes, You Can Adopt! lives up to its name by providing a broad overview of the considerations, decisions, and processes involved in adopting a child. Family stories and checklists of issues and questions to ask will help you consider whether adoption is right for you, and then address the many necessary additional decisions -- international or domestic, baby or older child, open or traditional, agency or independent. Information on the adoption process includes valuable details about finding a birthmother, talking with birthmothers, and paying birthmother expenses. In fact, a particular strength of this book is its treatment of independent adoption of a U.S. infant. This book would be a good place to start your learning about adoption, to define your interests, and decide what kind of adoption you want to pursue. Reviewed by Susan Freivalds
